Hello from the past.

 

August 3,2020

 

Sound decisions, but not yet with us.

- World of Warplanes will be completely closed on September 30, 2020. However, so far only in China.

• On July 30, the ability to make payments ceased.
• On September 30, at 20:00, the WoWP CN servers will be shut down, the website, forum and CSP will be closed. However, full of sadness and confusion, we must regret to inform everyone that World of Warplanes will officially cease operations at 20:00 on September 30, 2020. The game server will be closed. After the server is closed, players will not be able to enter the game. Currently, no words can express feelings and apologies in our hearts, but there is no constant banquet in the world ...

“Since the official launch of World of Warplanes, it has resonated with and loved by most players. We found close-knit and reliable teammates here, met friends from all over the world and built an unbreakable friendship in war. Looking back over the past six years, we are deeply proud to have spent countless happy days with pilots. We are sincerely grateful for your support and help!

... To express our apologies and thank you for your long-term support of World of Warplanes, we have prepared a compensation plan that can be used by all players who log into World of Warplanes. "

After shutting down the servers, ALL of your World of Warplanes CN account data will be deleted.
Compensation for other projects to players is also provided.

To receive compensation, you must apply for data inheritance and activate the game World of Tanks. After World of Warplanes closes, compensation will be credited to the player's World of Tanks account.

Depending on the number of battles you have fought in World of Warplanes, you will receive a corresponding compensation in WOT:

• 0-100 battles: 7 days of WOT Premium Tank Account.
• 101-1000 battles: 30 days of WOT. Tank premium account, personal training manual (850,000 crew experience) x1.
• 1001-3000 battles: 30 days of WOT tank premium account, personal training manual (850,000 crew experience) x1, Tutorial (250,000 crew experience) x1, + 50% experience per battle for 2 hours x5, + 200% crew experience per battle for 2 hours x5.
• 3001-10,000 battles: 30 days of WOT tank premium account, personal training manual (850,000 crew experience) x2, Tutorial (250,000 crew experience) x1, reserve: + 100% experience per battle for 2 hours x10, + 300% experience crew per battle for 2 hours x10.
• 10,000+ battles: 30 days of WOT tank premium account, personal training manual (850,000 crew experience) x3, Tutorial (250,000 crew experience) x2, + 100% experience per battle for 2 hours x15, + 300% crew experience per battle for 2 hours x15.

* If you are already a World of Tanks player and have completed the data inheritance process, then your gold, premium account and free experience in World of Warplanes will be transferred to the new version of the World of Tanks server.
** Please note that Wargaming is not going to return money spent by players to buy gold, premium planes, create a clan, purchase camouflages, emblems, etc.

As I understand it, the CN server is unrelated to the rest of Warplanes and this shutdown was the result of a licensing issue more than anything

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Thanks for that, it cleared things up for me.  Apparently this is the CN server running the old version and it's being shut down.  Nothing that will impact NA, EU, RU and I assume the Asia server that is on the current version either.  

 

That server was always a gamble (as are all servers, like it or not), but it was more of a gamble than the others.  

 

Someday, this will all end.  Until then I will continue to collect Tokens in the hope that I can use them at the Pearly Gates to buy my passage.  

 

(That, or finally get the freakin' Vampire if I would just spend a few of them.)

Why in the world would they think anyone would trust them enough to start playing WoT after closing out their WoWP account?  I certainly wouldn't.  But I suppose it would be different for those who already play WoT.

As someone who plays occasionally on the Chinese server, I can assure you that the population was quite low, even in low tiers.  And it got a lot lower in the last few months as China has been cracking down on internet usage more, I've been disconnected in the middle of games probably 2/3s of the time lately, enough that I gave up.  It was.....interesting to say the least to play 1.9 again, despite the 400plus ping and no way to change anything from Mandarin, but if nothing else it assures me that 2.0 is way more fun that 1.9 ever was.   I believe it was a licensing issue as reported elsewhere, and there were some legal reasons as well as the Chinese server was doing some funky things with the product outside of what the deal with Wargaming originally was.

It was the decision of our Chinese partner, who published the game in China only. We cannot influence this decision in any way, moreover, it is not related to the current game on other realms in any terms — as you probably know, Chinese client has 1.9 version on.

Bobby,

 

Don't you have some giant pile of tokens?  Spend some, you big dope.  The Vampire is fun, and you can earn back the ones you spent.

Indeed. 


De-arse your bunks! Man the planes! The Fokkers are in sight! BAM ba LAMMM!

 

Also: J311yfish: " 'Seal clubbing' and 'head hunting' are an inseparable part of the competitive nature of the game, and both provide a valuable service."

Q. Hello, Sergey! The network is now actively discussing the closure of the 1.9 server in China. What is the perspective of the CIS server? You at least reassure the players, otherwise I don’t know if it’s worth buying premium airplanes in the store or not? :)) Otherwise I'll buy it, and after a couple of months you will write that the CIS server is closing with a pain in my heart :)) Should we be worried? I hope the question is relevant not only for me.

 

A. Greetings.

There is something to discuss on the network now, this year turned out to be. :)

As for China, I have already answered . The Chinese server has nothing to do with the current game and the current team playing it.

It looks like some on the CIS server are nervous

this was interesting...    Grenoli was asked about when Spec 2 was coming

 

"Greetings. Not in the near future and, probably, the approach to this innovation may change."

 
edit:   and another CIS forum post addressed by Grenoli     (wonder what the word "car" translates to?      the Hellcat is a legendary car, but...)
 

is it possible for the "Grumman F6F Hellcat" carrier-based fighter to appear in the game in the American aircraft branch? For example, as a pumpable car or as a premium car?

 

Hello. Perhaps the appearance of such an aircraft in the future, yes. This is a legendary car and deserves to be a part of our game. But whether Hellcat will be premium or upgradeable is an open question. As well as the timing of its appearance in the client.
